LISC National
What We Do

Financial Stability 


We know that healthy, vibrant communities are made up of people who have living wage jobs and feel confident about their economic futures. To get there, residents need the skills to advance along the path of employment and manage their money well. That’s why LISC invests in helping people tackle all the facets of financial life—earning a steady pay check, budgeting, building good credit and saving for education and retirement. 

LISC’s financial stability programs connect low- to moderate- income families with the financial and labor market mainstream. We offer employment and career services, financial coaching and education and low-cost financial products that build credit, savings and assets. 

Nationally, LISC's financial stability initiatives include a national network of nearly 80 Financial Opportunity Centers; occupational skills training and Bridges to Career Opportunities programs; and credit-building products.

Duluth LISC partners with Community Action Duluth to host its Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) known as Connect Forward which follows the Bridges to Career Opportunities model.
